Aight, so I got this new DVD burner from newegg.com no instructions or anything. I figure its going to be an easy install. It is goes in easy and all, but when I start up the computer doesn’t recognize its there.

So I do a add hardware scan. It comes up with a drive but to my suprise its my old one. A PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-104. The one I just bought
SAMSUNG 18X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write, LightScribe Technology Black IDE Model SH-S182M/BEBN - OEM from new Egg or in other words SH-S182M from Samsung.

I’m really confused so if anyone wants to help me out on this one it’d be fantastic.

Check the jumper settings on the back of the drive.
